§ Dr. Cunningham
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will arrange for work on the A595 Egremont bypass to commence in the next financial year.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
We shall build the new road as soon as possible.
Statutory orders for the line of the new road and alterations to side roads were published on 12 October. A compulsory purchase order will be advertised early next year. Progress will depend on the strength of objection to these orders and the necessity for a public inquiry
